Germany’s failed “renewable” energy policy

How futile and ultimately harmful the quest for hydrocarbon-free “green” energy actually is – and how hypocritical Al Gore, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and other eco activists are, when they tell the rest of the world how to live.

Green energy? Buyer beware!

In 2010 wind energy technologies received $5 billion in federal (taxpayer) subsidies, or $56.29 per megawatt-hour of electricity actually generated, and photovoltaic solar power received $968 million or $775.64 per mWh of actual electricity – while reliable natural gas-generated electricity received a paltry 64 cents per mWh.

Future of American Energy: Obama’s Anti-Energy Environmental Extremists or Romney’s Free Enterprise Pro-growth

The Obama vision has been an unmitigated disaster. Countless failures, bankruptcies and layoffs are matched by a need for perpetual subsidies – taken from hard-working, productive people and businesses, and given by unaccountable bureaucrats to failed technologies and companies, run by crony-corporatists who return the favor by contributing substantial portions of our compulsory taxpayer largesse to the reelection campaigns of cooperative politicians.

Your money gone with the wind – $50 million paid for shutting down wind turbines

Taxpayers subsidize wind energy, pay up to 38% higher electric rates due to requiring “renewable” energy and now will have to pay for wind turbines to sit idle. This exemplifies the absurdness of “green” energy subsides, mandates and wasted government spending. How long will we put up with this insanity?
